Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT - TV / KSVT - TV ) Students at Xavier Charter School are celebrating after they won first place at an academic decathlon in Boise.

Students test in ten events; this includes math, science, social science, and language.

"This is our first time we found out about the program and to have the ability to go to state and to perform like we did our very first year in the program is pretty astounding,” said Jolynn Heiner, Xavier Charter School.

The Xavier team plans to compete in nationals this April.
